I received my AV EVSE Tuesday evening the 28th, but my electrician is out of town for the week, so I won't be able to install it and claim the 50% tax credit in 2010. I note that the form on Nissan's site under Buy -> 'Rebates and Incentives' now says 30%, but it still says expiration in 2010. My understanding it that the new tax bill just signed extends the 30% through 2011.
My Nissan dashboard still shows my charging dock status as "schedule installation." Is this what you other cash & carry folks have, or do I need to do something more ?
I am impressed with the detailed quality of the installation and user manual. They make a big point about the need for a local permit and inspection of the installation. I can see that the installation is not difficult and that it is no big deal, but my town's charges for permits are very reasonable, so since I have to delay a week or so anyway I might as well get it permitted. I know that there has been previous opinion that the IRS won't care.
Are most of you folks getting these last-minute installs skipping the permit and inspection? I guess you could pull the permit after the installation if you wished, but if this occurred next year there would be a public record with 2011 on it.
